I look up alot these days and see…
The blue sky and early dusting of snow as we crossed mountains last week…
To yesterday… what was to be a rainy day, changed heavy grey to open blue.
And the geese are back……..
I remember them from last year. They arrived here when I did… and I envied their freedom.
I see them a little different now.
They have come and gone and returned again from who knows where.
They are subject to seasons, just as I. They move with the change of weather, food and shelter.
I spend my season of change in this same spot.
And I am at peace with that.

“subject to seasons…I spend my season of change in this same spot.” I like that analogy – and the verse is perfect. We had some geese go overhead like that – they were heading south, away from here. I wondered at the cycle, the pattern of their lives. Amazing.
We live near a game refuge… I think they stop here on their way further south. Some probably stay. It just occurred to me yesterday of all the changes this past year… yet I never went anywhere 🙂 I think I’m thinking too much with this series of 31 days 🙂 But it’s been good.
I love hearing the geese arrive here in the early spring. They’ve gone from our marsh now, although many remain in local areas throughout the winter. I’m very conscious of this ‘season of change’, more for the mood I’m in than for any real changes.
These seasons are so interesting… there’s January 1st for a calendar new year… and when I worked in an office we had our fiscal new year of July 1st… but for me fall has always felt like a new beginning. Must be the stark change in foliage that gets me. Sorry, I’m rambling today 🙂 Thanks, Carol.
